Dr. Clint Bryan
Dr. Clint Bryan, associate professor of English, has taught at Northwest University since 2015. He teaches writing at all levels – from composition and rhetoric to Professional Editing, but he claims his favorite course to teach annually is African American Literature. He serves as instructor for UCOR: Life Calling, a first-year experience course required for new students each fall. He was recently named the associate dean of the College of Arts and Sciences; he will assume the role of Dean on June 1, 2023.
Clint earned a Ph.D. in rhetoric, composition, and linguistics from Middle Tennessee State University in 2016. He has been ordained with the Assemblies of God since 1992 and has served in various campus ministry and local church roles in the Midwest and mid-South for 30+ years. He brings these two areas of scholarly interest–the Church and public discourse–together in his published research into sermons, televangelists, and the online preaching phenomenon. He is currently coauthoring a book on the ways that academics learn intuitively to write in the highly specialized forms that open doors for future grants, fellowships, promotion, and tenure.
Clint and his wife Sally have been married for over 33 years; they have a grown daughter, who is married to an NU alumnus.
